“Art Hub Copenhagen is an expression of the vision to create an innovative and leading place for the development of contemporary art. The ambition is to establish an inspiring and progressive framework for contemporary art around the core values of interdisciplinarity, collaboration and an international perspective. The goal is a physical house located in central Copenhagen that will facilitate significant and diverse developments in relation to working conditions and international opportunities within contemporary art.”
— Chairman Tine Fischer
ABOUT Art Hub Copenhagen
The association Art Hub Copenhagen works to establish an international centre of artistic research, development and production in Copenhagen. The association is founded with the purpose of working to establish and manage Art Hub Copenhagen, including development and planning of the initiative as well as raising the necessary financial resources. Art Hub Copenhagen will be a dynamic house of artistic production, development and research that stimulates and challenges the professional artistic milieu, while focusing on the arts’ and artists’ engaged dialogue with the outside world.
From January 2019 Art Hub Copenhagen moved into its own space at the Meatpacking district in Copenhagen, and began working on activities with national and international partners. The space is temporary, why a search for a permanent place to realize Art Hub Copenhagen’s full potential is ongoing.

“As a society, we will always have the need for art to be created at the highest level. The framework that might best support the creation and accessibility of art, however, changes over time. If Art Hub Copenhagen can create a new framework for the production and availability of outstanding art, it will be a gift for both Denmark and the arts. I look very much forward to participating in this project.”
